American video game company THQ, publisher of the forthcoming and highly anticipated MMA video game UFC: Undisputed, has succesfully shed over $220 million dollars in costs and salaries, effectively saving them from bankruptcy for the forseeable future.
THQ has a lot of eggs in one basket between three games that are due out in the 2009 fiscal year; Red Faction: Guerrila (due in June), Darksiders: Wrath of War (due in the Fall) and the aforementioned UFC 2009: Undisputed (available May 19th). Additionally, all three titles are already slated for sequels to be developed in close proximity to their releases. The successes or failures of these titles will undoubtedly cast the die for THQ's future viability in the video game marketplace.
For now, UFC 2009: Undisputed is not only assured of its impending release, but UFC 2010 is now likely to see the light of day as well.
